## What is discrete in a graph?

A discrete graph is one with scattered points. They may or may not show a direction or trend. They don’t have data in between the points already given. A continuous graph has a line because there is data in between the points already given.

## How do I know if a graph is continuous or discrete?

When figuring out if a graph is continuous or discrete we see if all the points are connected. If the line is connected between the start and the end, we say the graph is continuous. If the points are not connected it is discrete. Let’s now look at some application examples of discrete and continuous things.

**What is an example of a discrete situation?**

Definition: A set of data is said to be discrete if the values belonging to the set are distinct and separate (unconnected values). Examples: • The height of a horse (could be any value within the range of horse heights).

**Is age discrete or continuous?**

Technically speaking, age is a continuous variable because it can take on any value with any number of decimal places. What is this? If you know someone’s birth date, you can calculate their exact age including years, months, weeks, days, hours, seconds, etc. so it’s possible to say that someone is 6.225549 years old.

### How do you graph discrete data?

Discrete data is best represented using bar charts. Temperature graphs would usually be line graphs because the data is continuous . When you are graphing percentages of a distribution a pie chart would be suitable.

### What are 5 examples of discrete data?

Examples of discrete data:

- The number of students in a class.
- The number of workers in a company.
- The number of parts damaged during transportation.
- Shoe sizes.
- Number of languages an individual speaks.
- The number of home runs in a baseball game.
- The number of test questions you answered correctly.

**Is eye color a discrete or continuous variable?**

Examples. The following are examples of discrete variables: Gender. Eye color (brown, blue, green, hazel)

**What is an example of a discrete domain?**

Discrete Domain The values that will work for the function are distinct and separate from each other. For example, the number of children you can have is a discrete answer. You can have 0 or 1, 2, 3, etc. A discrete domain will always be either a finite set of x-values or an infinite set of countable x-values.

#### What kind of graph is use to show discrete data?

Examples Discrete data is best represented using bar charts. Temperature graphs would usually be line graphs because the data is continuous. When you are graphing percentages of a distribution a pie chart would be suitable. When you have two variables, such as marks in a Maths test and marks in a Science test, then a scatter diagram would be the one to use.

#### What is the difference between discrete and continuous graphs?

Discrete graphs represent values at specific points along the number line. The most common discrete graphs are those that represent sequences and series. These graphs do not possess a smooth continuous line but rather only plot points above consecutive integer values.

**What type of chart is used to show discrete data?**

Bar Chart. Bar chart is a combination of vertical or horizontal combination bars.

**What are some examples of discrete data?**

Discrete data is information that we collect that can be counted and that only has a certain number of values. Examples of discrete data include the number of people in a class, test questions answered correctly, and home runs hit. Tables and graphs are two ways to show the discrete data that you collect.
